Default 2013 Honda Accord: First official images released

Filed under: Sedan, Honda

If Honda's words are to be believed, what you're looking at here is "the most sculpted Accord ever." The camouflage has been pulled away and we're now getting our first glimpse at the production 2013 Accord sedan.

Now, let's dissect that "most sculpted Accord" statement for a moment. Historically, Honda has never been known to break design barriers with its decidedly likable midsize sedan. But when you're competing with the likes of the best-selling Toyota Camry in one of the most competitive and highly shopped segments in the industry, sex doesn't always sell. And to that extent, yes, this is the most sculpted Accord we've seen - certainly more attractive than the current sedan - but it won't set the world on fire. And that's fine, because conservative, handsome styling sells.

Conservative and handsome it definitely is. We like the strong character line that sweeps along the belt line and fades off just before the C pillar, and elements like the attractive 10-spoke wheels, LED running lamps, headlamps and taillamps keep it looking modern. From the rear, we won't fault you for mistaking the Accord for a Hyundai Genesis, and we'll really have to see the car in person before making final design judgments. It's not Sonata sleek, but it certainly doesn't look bad.

That's all we know for now, though Honda does say that the 2013 Accord sedan is "bigger on the inside and smaller on the outside." We'll have more details when the car officially debuts in the fall. In the meantime, peruse the two high-res images in our attached gallery and scroll down for Honda's press blast.Continue reading 2013 Honda Accord: First official images released
